fun and interesting crux sequence. clipping the bolt protecting it blew the onsight attempt as a bail biner got in the way. cleaned the route just as a large thunderstorm rolled in.

Tough crux to a big sloping rail with chalk all over it. Have to hit just the right spot! Fight the pump on the way up. Tough one.

Climbed this tired in 90º weather and blew the onsight royally. I'm 5'9" and that crux to the sloping rail was really tough for me including the moves after to hit the next clip. Great climb but tough for 10b!

This was my favorite climb at the Orange Oswald wall, but it suffers from the same impact as all of them - chalky, polished holds all the way up.

I found my limit on this route. I loved it, but it definitely set me back in reality. The crux is a high stepping throw to a sloper that I found rocking right and statically moving into was best for me. Definitely hit the sloper further right for a more positive side. After the sloper, set your feet and reach for a couple crimpers that lead to a relieving edge. I was feeling the pump big time after these moves, but it finishes with some overhanging jugs and really nice movement. I will definitely attempt a more clean run the next time I'm there!
